I am working on the translation of

Managed to get Joomfish installed, Russian Language Pack, all good :) But I have 2 issues:
1) I use Firefox with Quick Locale Switcher - it appears that Joomla is not detecting the language -
2) How can I add a row of flags to let people override the default language detection? (once it works!)

to enable language determination from joomla open the jfrouter plugin and change to the desired.

to add flags you have to enable the jlanguage selection module that installed when you install the joomfish component

Hi, if I go to: Extensions > Plugin Manager > all I can see is:Joomfish - Missing_translation
If I go to Components > Joomfish > Plugin Manager.... I see the same thing.

If I go to Extensions > Module Manager I cannot locate a jlanguage selection module.

What am I doing wrong?

Thank you for your help :)

extensions --> plugins --> System - Jfrouter

extensions --> modules --> Language Selection

you must have these as there are installed with joomfish component

Well, I took this Joomla installation over from another developer - Joomfish was installed - could it be he removed them because I definitely do not see them there.... although...

What I do see if I go to:
Extensions > Install/Uninstall > Modules (Tab)

I think the reason it was not detecting properly was due to "cookies"
